Profile

I came to Peace School one year ago when my mother died. My father is related to the cook at Peace School and she suggested that I come here to complete my primary education. It has been difficult because the classes here are taught in English. The old school I attended uses our native language Luganda. But I am learning English very fast.
 
I live in the Boy’s Dormitory with 14 other boys. Ali is my best friend. We study together and play together. I like to study, and English has become my favorite subject.
 
During the holiday I travel back to my village to see my father and family. It is a long journey.
 
When I grow up I would like to be an airplane pilot. I would love to look down at the earth from the sky. I would like to visit other countries, especially America. I hope you can help me achieve my dreams by helping me obtain an education.
 
Note: Peace Nursery and Primary School is a private school serving orphans and other children unable to afford the costs of attending public schools. As such, it receives no funding from public sources. Located in a suburb of Uganda’s capital city Kampala, the school is in a highly urban setting and must pay for water and sanitation service as well as teacher salaries and facilities. School Supplies include a school uniform, other clothing (underwear and after school clothing), hygiene items (soap, toothpaste, laundry soap, haircuts, etc) medical care, transportation, and entertainment (sports equipment, musical instruments). Educational materials include text books, light for studying at night, pencils, paper, etc. Room and board includes bedding, three meals a day seven days a week, and 24/7 adult supervision.
